Our School-Age Program

Guiding children to experience their world and pursue their interests

Our school-age programs include before- and after-school care, back-up care for school holidays and school closing days, and summer day camp. We provide school-age children with the opportunity to live, learn and socialize in a relaxed setting outside of school.

We offer a wealth of enrichment activities that engage the interests of school-age children. You may find school-age children creating a magazine or a video, playing chess or shooting hoops, tutoring each other or forming a club. Teachers are there alongside, facilitating, guiding and understanding that learning does not have to take on the tone and texture of a school day but rather be filled with fun.

Stamp Collecting

You Will Need:

Scissors, a book, pen, and stamps

Directions:

When the mail arrives, have your child cut the stamps off the letters. Look at the stamps carefully and discuss what’s on them. You can do this together each day for a week, or off and on until you collect enough stamps. Working together, glue the stamps in a scrapbook. Let your child decide how to organize the book. Talk about how much each stamp cost, where they are from, if she has two (or more) that are the same, etc. Your child might want to look up the places the stamps came from on the Internet.

Tip:

An exciting family hobby may emerge from this activity.
